This weekend, Style Fashion Week brought LA’s hottest influencer designers to the New York Runway. Briana Wilson’s Matte Brand, Adriana Sahar, and Sweet Talk Swim debuted their SS’19 collections at the Manhattan Center on Friday. Seated front row was Ming Lee Simmons, Julz (YesJulz) Goddard, WolfTyla, Diggy Simmons and Sihoban Bell were among others were seated front row. Models, styled by Davines strutted down the runway. VIP’s and socialite guests viewed sipped Tipsy Girl Wines and lounged in VIP boxes, where the decor was provided by renowned furniture designer Jimmy DeLaurentis.
These young brands and designers, often the inspiration behind luxury giants, rarely make their way to the New York runway—operating under tight margins without corporate budgets to produce major runway shows.
Style Fashion Week helps to share the cost of these major productions—providing designers the platform to display their work on the same level as their luxury competitors. Style Fashion Week recognizes that these designers are a vital piece of the fashion community and will continue to work to support them.
